Laguna Creek's baseball coach Travis Wardlaw has resigned. The reason is pretty simple and really a shame...the guy and his wife are both young teachers, both pretty low on the pay scale and with the recent budget cutbacks in the Elk Grove School District, he's lost about $800 in pay.
So, he's had to take a job in the afterschool program at Jackman Junior High which meant he cannot coach baseball at his alma mater.
Few high school coaches have the passion of Travis. Given the fact that many parents are sending their players to other EGUSD high schools to play baseball though they live in Laguna's attendance district, the Cardinals have been quite competitive. (Read my Notebook in the 10/1 paper).
Laguna Creek will miss Wardlaw.
